The cationic protein, lysozyme, has an extracellular distribution in cartilage but its precise role in this tissue has not yet been established. This study describes the dependence of salt concentration on the binding properties of lysozyme isoforms of different cationic charges, isolated from bovine cartilage, to the two major and structurally similar glycosaminoglycans of cartilage, i.e., chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronan. The binding of most cartilage lysozyme isoforms and hen egg-white… CONTINUE READING
